Pics of the new front/rear hubs and c-hubs. Left one is the old version and the right is the new one from the F-parts I got today from Japan (RC-champ). They use different size wheel bearings and also the kingpins are different.

Another pic is the mini with the 225mm extension plate

Any indication of the material of the parts? PA-GF maybe? Hopefully sturdy enough to warrant not using the aluminum knuckles..

From the pics it looks like the screws for the front end of the extension are run inside towards outside. Or opposite from the M03L center chassis piece. Is that right?

Schumacher USA will be getting Mini Cooper size Take Off RP30 tires and inserts later this month. They are high performance belted slicks identical to the tires used at the Reedy Sedan Race last year and this year...just in the Mini Coopr size.

We are just getting a small batch in to test the demand for the product. Ask you local shops to call us and get soem on order or just call us direct.

Bearings are all either 8 x 5 or 11 x 5 so you are good.
as for the Battery if you are rnning a silver can the 3000 should get you about 20 - 25 min of runtime.

Can't see any PA-GF in the parts or tree only PA.

Yes, the screws for the front end of the extension are run inside towards outside. Still managed to screw it in without opening the front chassis in half.

Just let my LHS know to put in thier order! Looking forward to trying those out.

One question - Will they be the same size as the Tamiya Mini tires or smaller like HPI X-patterns?
